CoryPNovember 8, 2012

I could use some help identifying my Grandfathers old desk and chair. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks.

The chair doesn't look as old as the desk. I don't think they're a set. It could be Fisher Price? Possibly Playskool.

Love the desk--great shape if one has the room for it! More photos would be helpful, and probably the chair too.

Can you show a picture of the chair - whole chair?

Nice desk, if you have the room for it, although it's not good if you need file space. They were often used in reception areas and hotels as writing desks.

Hard to tell the vintage becvause they had a fairly long period of manufacture.

Lovely set!! Could that have been in your grandfather's place of business? It looks like an executive office desk.
I am guessing sometime in the era of 1920 to 1930.
How tall is the desk top from the floor? Looks like it's missing a caster or a bun foot on the bottom of the leg.
